Beautiful winter at SUP lake (Lake Matildanjärvi)

Beautiful December morning in Mathildedal village.  The lake I use to paddle in summertimes is frozen, and the scenery is stunning.  Even I cannot wait the summer to be able to paddle again I love winters as well.

After walking in a winter wonderland you can have a cup of coffee in a cafeteria (Kahvila Kyläkonttori & Puoti) by the sea in Mathildedal Marina area.


Video: Autumn SUP on The River Halikko 10.10.2015

A very first SUP video by me: during the paddling on The River Halikko (a post in Finnish) a video camera was installed on the SUP board  heading forwards . The total material shot was 70 minutes and after editing the clip lasts 6 minutes.  You might think that this is the most boring video you have ever seen, or you can enjoy the mindfulness or slow living experience in Finnish landscape with autumn calors, and also see some ice breaking moments.

Back in Finland (Rescue training)

After a holiday week in France (Nice) being back in Finland again. The temperature here is about 10 degrees less than in Southern France but +24 is not bad at all.  Actually never been cold when SUPing, neither today.  The Matildanjärvi lake was calm, waves were so nice. Going round the Isoholma island was a good evening exercise and the water in the lake was warm enough so I decided to some rescue training which I have wanted to do already for some time.

So get off the board and trying to get back on in deep water. From the side it was doable but a bit tricky.  From an end it was easy, so good to remember that if needed in real situation. It was fun indeed to play in the water. After SUP it was so nice to go to sauna and just relax.
